David West (rest) will not play on Saturday vs. the Lakers.
West has not received a blurb since mid-July when he signed with the Warriors. While he's a solid depth piece in reality, the veteran offers nothing in fantasy at this stage of his career. Oct 15 - 6:03 PM

Warriors sign F David West to a one-year contract.

It's for the veteran's minimum. West can currently be expected to back up both the power forward and center positions, but his role could change slightly depending on how the back end of Golden State's roster ultimately shakes out. Assuming everyone ahead of him remains healthy, Green should not offer any fantasy value.

David West will sign with the Warriors on a one-year deal for the veteran's minimum.

The Warriors' strong offseason continues. West gave up roughly $12 million last season to chase a title with the Spurs, but he will make just $1.55 million with the Warriors as he continues his pursuit of a championship ring. West should provide some depth behind Draymond Green and Zaza Pachulia and finally gives the Warriors a reliable big off the bench. He won't have much fantasy value in Golden State, though.
Jul 5 - 4:23 PM

David West officially declined to pick up his player option with the Spurs for the 2016-17 season, and his agent said that he hasn't decided if he'll suit up for another season.

While the 35-year-old is past his days of being a relevant name in fantasy hoops, he should still have enough in the tank to give a meaningful contribution off the bench on a contending team. West gave up roughly $12 million for a chance to win a title with the Spurs, but his team ended up getting bounced in the second round of the playoffs. The opportunity to win a championship will likely again be more important than the paycheck for West this offseason.
Jun 22 - 2:20 PM

David West will decline his player option for the 2016-17 season.

He took a massive pay cut last year when he decided not to exercise his $12.6 million option with the Pacers to sign with the Spurs for just $1.5 million. This time around, West should be able to get more money as he heads into his age-36 season. He'll likely sign on a contending team again.
Jun 13 - 2:13 PM

David West will take his time this summer before deciding whether or not to exercise his $1.5 million player option for the 2016-17 season.

West opted out of a $12 million player option for the Pacers last season and signed a $1.5 million deal with San Antonio for a chance to reach the Finals, so his plan backfired on him after the Spurs were eliminated by the Thunder in round two. West only averaged 18.0 minutes during the regular season and will be 36 years old this summer, so he likely won't be a fantasy asset if he chooses to remain in San Antonio. That could change if Tim Duncan retires, though.
May 13 - 9:37 AM

David West (rest) will not play Wednesday vs. the Mavs.

Tim Duncan (rest) and LaMarcus Aldridge (rest, finger) will also be rested on Wednesday night, which will open up minutes for Boris Diaw, Boban Marjanovic and Matt Bonner, with Diaw offering the most upside out of the group.

David West will come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Thunder.

The Spurs will go their normal starting lineup of Tony Parker, Danny Green, Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Tim Duncan. The Spurs are expected to rest several starters on Wednesday vs. Dallas, so West could have another start coming his way.
Apr 12 - 8:07 PM

David West started in place of Tim Duncan (rest) on Sunday, posting four points, 10 rebounds, three assists and two steals in 29 minutes during a loss to the visiting Warriors.

West grabbed four of the Spurs' 18 offensive rebounds, which helped prop up an otherwise disjointed offensive effort, but it wasn't enough to beat the defending champs. West is a viable DNP punt play if Duncan misses another game on Tuesday or Wednesday, so keep an eye out for Spurs' lineup updates.
Apr 10 - 9:39 PM

David West will start Sunday's game in place of Tim Duncan (rest).

West has had a few nice games as a fill-in starter this season, but he draws a tough matchup vs. the versatile Warriors. Boris Diaw's absence with a groin injury leaves the Spurs' frontcourt even thinner, so we're likely to see plenty of small-ball lineups tonight.
Apr 10 - 5:28 PM

David West blocked a season-high five shots on Friday against the Nuggets, adding 17 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one steal and no turnovers in 32 minutes.

He is expected to move back to the bench on Sunday against the Warriors. This was a nice improvement from his previous starts, averaging 9.2 points, 5.0 boards, 2.4 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.8 steals in those 17. He will likely get one more start this season.
Apr 9 - 1:56 AM

David West will return to the starting lineup for Friday's game against the Nuggets with LaMarcus Aldridge (finger) unavailable.

As a starter this season, West owns averages of 9.2 points, 5.0 boards, 2.4 assists, 0.8 steals and 1.0 block per contest on 58.6 percent shooting. The Spurs are resting all their starters aside from Tim Duncan, so West figures to be a focal point of the offense, and with a favorable matchup against the Nuggets he's someone to consider deploying in DFS.
Apr 8 - 8:31 PM

David West scored six points with three rebounds, four assists, one steal and no turnovers 18 minutes against the Raptors on Saturday.

He should get a few games with significant minutes, but West won't have much value while the Spurs are not resting players.
Apr 2 - 11:29 PM

David West (rest) will not play against the Pelicans on Wednesday.

It's scheduled rest and that will continue for basically the entire roster. With West out, there might be a few more minutes Boban Marjanovic. It's also worth mentioning another bench player could sit tonight.
Mar 30 - 6:56 PM

David West scored 17 points with six boards, three assists and one block vs. the Thunder on Saturday.

He only played 24 minutes with Tim Duncan (rest) and LaMarcus Aldridge (rest) both out, as coach Gregg Popovich started Boris Diaw and Boban Marjanovic. Duncan will miss Monday's game but Aldridge should be back, so West can be left on the wire in most leagues.
